Ah, here he is again, the one and only Martin Carr, and the anxiety that's been killing me since the demise of the fabulous Boo Radleys suddenly disappeared. Actually, it started to disappear with his great mini album 'The Fingeertip Saint Sessions Vol. 1' just a few weeks before this great, strange, intensely moving full length comeback. An understated comeback, naturally, with a soft, gentle sound reminiscent of High Llamas and, of course, The Beach Boys, and only nine songs. But, how unbelievably great these songs are!
It's fair to say that he may not be the best singer ever, and Sice is still sorely missed, but since Martin dedicated all his records as Brave Captain to his former bandmates, and these new songs really shine in the dark, everything is forgiven.
